Restaurant Patron Criticizes Romney Over Mormon Faith

Dover, NH (AP) -- Campaigning in New Hampshire, Presidential contender Mitt Romney has heard from one man about his religion.

He was visiting a Dover bakery Tuesday morning when a patron began shouting that Romney would not get his vote because of his Mormon faith.

Romney was there to kick off the second of two days' worth of campaign visits in the lead primary state. Romney smiled and asked if he could shake the man's hand anyway. The man refused.

The man later told reporters he planned to vote for Hillary Rodham Clinton, should she win the Democratic Presidential nomination.

If elected, Romney would be the first Mormon to serve in the White House.
